Darren McFadden, D.J. Hayden ruled out

darren mcfadden The Oakland Raiders have ruled out six players for Sunday’s game against the Giants.  Two of those players are Darren McFadden and D.J. Hayden.

Coach Dennis Allen announced that running back Darren McFadden, cornerback D.J. Hayden, safety Tyvon Branch, tackle Tony Pashos, wide receiver Juron Criner and tackle Matt McCants have all been ruled out because of injuries.

Running back Rashad Jennings did a nice job filling in for McFadden the last time he went down.  But he’ll be going up against a Giants run defense that has been very stingy as of late after shutting down LeSean McCoy and Adrian Peterson.

    McF does not want to play. It seems to me, of all injuries, a pulled groin would be the easiest to fake. McF is pulled groin. Jennings is better anyway. I was on McF’s side for about a minute when he ran the Wildcat … I thought, “Finally he’s doing something.” but that has fizzled and he is ‘hurt’ again. Good luck wherever it is you’re playing next year McF. Good luck to the team that signs you too. Good luck on their getting their monies worth in regard to playing time. I hope you saved your money because you won’t be in the league come 2016.

    DJ is too small and he plays out of control. He stays with the receivers for the most part but he is out of control when the ball comes in. He is usually trailing, flailing, and falling.

    These are the folk who won’t be on the team next year: Ford, McF, and #21.

    The Raiders should spend their 3rd round pick (they have one?) on a QB. They should do that every couple of years. It seems you can get good QBs in the 3rd round for some reason. Not always, but there are those “under the radar” “under-rated” guys floating around in the 3rd round. Montana was a 3rd rounder I believe. I like Pryor but the only progress I saw last week against the Eagles was he threw the ball away a couple of times. Terrell … this is football, not basketball.
